4. Chip protection
5. NC without
6. High strength and stability
thanks to undercut design
7. Locking crossbar
on rear side
8. Straight running
due to inner/outer-
9. Quiet running
due to built-in brake
* The required clearance height is HF = H + 100 mm (with 5 kg/m fill weight), this should be taken into account for all application types.Please contact us if you have particularly narrow space conditions.
** The calculated length corresponds to the chain length without mounting brackets.

from 12 m to max. 450 mChain length= S/2+K2Long travels - gliding (up to max. 450 m) Here, the e-chain® upper runs gliding on the lower run in a guide trough. We recommend letting our engineers support you when planning this type of system. In case of travel lengths between 10 and 12 m, we recommend a larger unsupported e-chain®.

Other installation types
Option 1: Standard
As standard, igus® separators are fitted every 2nd chain link!Please observe minimum clearance from the side links! e-tube: 32 mm
Slotted separator 6005
Fast installation - Can be retrofitted in existing
separation system without dismantling (top and
bottom slots cannot be used for shelves)
For shelf-like separation with intermediate shelves
420.X in height increments of 7 mm (in 15 levels).
Side plate 6002
same as separators. Enables interior separation
up to the side links. No minimum side clearance required!
Intermediate shelf 420.X
For horizontal separation. Shelves
of various widths can be arranged in steps of 7 mm on 15 levels.
Steel - pivoting
Steel - locking
